AceShowbiz - Rocker Roger Daltrey is hoping cameras will roll on his long-awaited Keith Moon biopic next year.
The veteran The Who star has been developing the project about his late bandmate since 2013, and now it seems he is in the process of casting the film - and he's looking for an actor with a special glint in his eye for the lead.
"I've got to find a Keith Moon," Daltrey told BBC6 Music. "It's going to be very, very dependent on the actor and the actor's eyes. Because you've got to cast it completely from the eyes because Moon had extraordinary eyes."
And it seems Daltrey isn't too concerned about the chosen actor's musical ability.
"What makes you think Keith was a f**king musician?" Roger laughs. "He would have said, 'How dare you, my boy! A musician? I'm a f**king drummer!'"
The singer is hoping to shoot the biopic in 2019.
Moon, who struggled with substance abuse and heavy drinking, was known for his outrageous behaviour both on and off the stage.
He joined The Who in 1964 and made a final appearance during a band reunion for a documentary in 1978. He died in London four months later from a prescription drug overdose, aged 32.
